to say one thing. like when does the fbi get involved? >> okay. that's usually the question you ask after you tell the story. but go ahead and do it now. >> in an e-mail. no, i'm serious. >> no, that's all right. >> on an e-mail. if somebody writes a nasty e-mail to me, do i get the fbi involved? >> i don't think you have a lot of classified material on your computer, though, right? >> well, this lady that got the fbi involved, they didn't know at the time. this was a fishing expedition. there are so many questions here that just don't add up. you know what i think we should do first? it's just me. we should read the news. >> that would be great. >> and then you tell me and then i'll ask the question. >> that could be unprecedented. >> i don't like it but i think in this case. >> because then what you say might actually make sense to people. >> you have the person who knows the most about everything, andrea many wa andrea in washington. >> this morning's "new york times," high-up fbi officials uncovered a possible affair involving the new cia director. according to "the times," no one out
it was handled wrong by the fbi, first of all to have something like this a cyber harassment case rise to the level of an fbi investigation. when it reached the cia director, have the fbi investigate the director of of the cia and the president or the attorney general not be notified of it is a dereliction of duty. the president if he was not told should have been told and that to me was somebody really dropping the ball. the other thing makes the whole thing implausible is you have a four, five, six-month investigation whatever it was. nothing comes out, nothing is disclosed. suddenly on election night the fbi announces the investigation is over and they tell general clapper. the next day the white house finds out about it, the next day general petraeus submits his resignation. friday the president accepts the resignation. we find yesterday the fbi raiding the home of paula broadwell. then we find out general allen has been involved in emails with joe kelley, so you have like four or five different events happening in the last seven days when for the prior five or six months nothing h
. there are new details, and new questions this morning, about an fbi investigation that led to his departure. the fbi uncovered evidence of an affair between petraeus and his biographer paula broadwell, after she allegedly sent harassing e-mails to another woman she jealously thought was too close to petraeus. new york congressman peter king says there are far more questions than answers. >> this seems to have been going on for several months. yet now it appears that they're saying that the fbi didn't realize until election day that general petraeus was involved. it just doesn't add up. and you've got this type of investigation, the fbi investigating e-mails, the e-mails leading to the cia director, and it's taking four months to find out that the cia director was involved. >> cnn's barbara starr is following this developing story, she's live at the pentagon for us. good morning. tell us, what is the status of the investigation right now? >> well, good morning, alina. "the new york times" is now reporting this morning that the investigation actually began some months ago. but, again, the que
-mails that he exchanged with the tampa temptress, jill kelly. she started the fbi investigation of petraeus in the first place. why are the military generals acting so much like politicians? well, we'll talk about that and all kinds of other issues but first, we get the latest. today's current news update, lisa ferguson's got it out in los angeles. good morning. >> hey bill, good morning everyone. as bill mentioned this petraeus story seems to be getting more complex by the minute. we'll give you more information here because we are continuing to learn more about this whole scandal involving now former c.i.a. director david petraeus and his extramarital affair with the author of his biography paula broadwell. another american is now getting caught up in the whole thing and that is the top commander in afghanistan, general john allen. turns out the pentagon is now investigating him as well for sending inappropriate e-mails to jill kelly. now, if you remember from yesterday, kelly is the same woman who sparked this whol
. senator feinstein says she plans to investigate why the fbi kept relevant lawmakers in the dark and plained that the fbi wasn't looking for lusty emails between a four-star general and his biographer, they were trying, instead, to find out why broadwell was harassing another woman, whose identity is unknown. >> the worry is yes and yes. we received no advance notice. it was like a lightning bolt. the way i found out, i came back to washington thursday night. friday morning, the staff director told me, there were a number of calls from press about this. i called david petraeus. >> director petraeus resigned less than a week before he was scheduled to testify before congress about the cia's response to the deadly 9/11 raid on the american consulate in benghazi. at this point, he is not expected to appear anymore. although, the vice chairman of the senate committee says petraeus might not keep quiet forever. >> he's a very capable dupe morel, mike morel, is going to be testifying next thursday. that's fine because he certainly was there when -- when all of decisions were made, rela
threatening you. we don't know what happened there. that may have been what caused the fbi to be contacted by jill kelley. i'm purely speculating there. but that's where the fbi became involved and interested in the e-mail exchanges between jill kelley and general john allen. in his opinion, innocuous entirely, but that seems to be the spark that dragged him into this particular investigation. again, this senior official saying, no sexual relationship between these two people at all. >> all right. nick payton walsh for us, obviously this is having effects around the world, getting information, trickles of information pouring in from around the world. nick, appreciate your reporting, thank you. >>> let's go down to the pentagon for more on general allen's communication with jill kelley. barbara starr is there. we're hearing about tens of thousands of documents handed over to investigators, just how much contact really did kelley have with the top commander in afghanistan because the numbers sound just unbelievable, 10,000 documents. >> don't they? it sounds staggering. it might actually be
sure as heck was not entitled to see and that's why the fbi did this. late at night, fbi agents raiding mrs. broadwell's north korea home on monday. it's why a 16-month panel discussion that might never have seen the light of day at the aspen institute all of a sudden now becomes very interesting. some added cig significance, shall we saw, because mrs. broadwell talked about being in general petraeus' inner circle in afghanistan. >> and i was embedded with general petraeus in afghanistan and it was a little confusing for some of the folks there because i'm also a military reservice, so a will the of my former peers didn't know how to treat me. was i major broadwell or journalist broadwell? i had to follow very clear lines of disclosure. i felt like i was held to a higher level of accountability because i could lose my clearance, yet i was entrust ed on this opportunity to sit in with meetings with general petraeus, listen to classified chatter of terrorist talk. >> boy. terrorist talk. just chatter. i'll just sit in on that. that's kind of a big deal. so from all we know, the affair bet
complained to the fbi last spring when paula broadwell was having an affair with petraeus allegedly harassed her with jealous e-mails. petraeus admitted the affair with broadwell but denies any elicit contact with kelley. so does general allen who was scheduled for a senate confirmation hearing this very week to become nato's supreme allied commander. today that's on hold, but he will continue in his position as the investigation continues. and all of that as the pentagon digs through 20,000 to 30,000 pages of e-mails and other communications, many with kelley over a two-year period. >>> each revelation brings 100 new questions and my colleague chris lawrence joins me from the pentagon to answer some of them. chris, so many twists and turns in this story. it's hard to keep track, quite frankly. let's begin with general john allen. we're talking about 20,000 to 30,000 pages of e-mails, many of them to jill kelley. it really seems like an incredible amount of e-mail traffic between a high-ranking general and a woman who really is just a volunteer for the military. how unusual is this? and what

, the fbi involved in the whole thing because she said that she was receive ofing harassing e-mails from this women, petraeus's biographer and ex-mistress, paula broadwell. bill: got all that? martha: i think so, you need a pen. catherine herridge is live in d.c.. tell us where we are today on the investigation. where is it. >> reporter: thank you, bill and good morning. so far virtually every publicly threat in the case leads back to jill kelly, a woman described as this unpaid social liaison for the military in tampa, florida. this morning it is alleged the commander of international forces in afghanistan, or isaf, general john allen, sent between 20 and 30,000 pages to kelly. e-mail traffic described as potentially inappropriate nature. it was jill kelly who alert ad fbi agent what she believed were harassing e-mails from the paula broadwell, the biographer and mistress of general david petraeus. it was investigation of kelly's complaints that ultimately forced resignation of general petraeus last week. spokesman george little gave a brief statement on general allen's status. >> while

? and why does the evidence keep getting discovered by the press and outside people, not by -- by the fbi, by administration officials and if they are going to put out the information to the senate, why don't they put it out for two days when nobody's around. >> sean: my goodness. you would have to be stupid not to come to the conclusion that there is something very suspicious here. >> greta: you left one out, the fact that a month ago, a tukneesian man was picked up in turkey, spotted by the cia and the video was at the consulate. he was puck picked up, turned over to tunewskneesia and for a month, we'll told we couldn't question him. and final, senator lindsay graham makes a phone call last week and the fbi get access to this man, something the president of the united states didn't do, couldn't do, wouldn't do. we have a senator from south carolina makes a simple phone call and now three weeks later, we have access to thim. >> this is not going to go away. no matter how much the white house wants to wish it away, or the state department. it won't go away until the questions are answered
before the house intelligence committee. and it really begs the question of what did the fbi know and when did they know it? how long did they sit on that information? i recall that general petraeus briefed the senate about what happened in benghazi. did he have this looming over his head? what is the realtiming here, liz? that's the real question that i think going forward is so imperative that we get to the bottom of. >> now, as for more on that timing, thursday is the closed door senate hearings on benghazi. petraeus was set to testify. needless to say now he is not. top director acting head of the cia. many are saying he still has to testify here, including ambassador bolted ton through the our network said this is -- there is no way around it that he has to testify. >> you would think he would. >> if they ask him to, even though he is an ordinary citizen now, he would still be required to. >> goes back to that thing about, you just can't have affairs. you know because of the blackmail issue. >> i disagree. you can have an affair. you can't put them on email, all right, people
